Taxes Are Crushing Woonsocket

Ok here you have a nice home for $229,900 now thats not a lot of money for a descent size home. You struggle to find the right mortgage at the right price then!... You say this must be wrong how could this be right! $9006 per year TAXES!  $750... per month to fund the Woonsocket system that is really broken! HOW could someone that is interested in buying a house for 229K possibly afford another $750 per month JUST for taxes. Something is very very wrong here. If that house was over the border in Bellingham the taxes would be about $2708 $225 per month. This should be front page news! and yes I do own many properties in this great city that I see getting crippled. At everyone of these homes someone is paying the taxes owners or Bank owned properties. WOW! Woonsocket

Ok, inexperience was the wrong word. How about: Other experience. Career politians don't seem to be working out so hot in RI or in Woonsocket.

May 1st at 7pm the RI Taxpayers will be in Woonsocket at the Elks Hall on Social Street to give a presentation and answer questions. Hopefully some elected officials will also be present.

I agree with Jay - we have to give the new Mayor and her administration a chance ... at least I'm willing to do that - and I don't belong to her political party!

Well this was my very first blog about something and I see people are as fired up as me about these crazy tax rates. I was driving into the city from a different way and realized the city was not very big and wondered how this could get messed up so much with all these houses one after another. Such a big budget for a small city. Even the old mills were turned into condos that generate a very large amount of tax revenue .Passion is good! Good luck to all.

Why should we give her a chance when she's not giving anyone at city hall a chance? If you are not a yes person, then she's terminates you or belittles you in front of the cameras.
